Kyle S. Jobin, CFP®, AIF®

President 
Jobin Financial 
 

Kyle's career as a financial planner began over 15 years ago when he joined his father's financial firm. His father retired in 2009 giving Kyle full responsibility for the company's operations. Due to the depth of the recession, this made for an especially difficult financial period. Despite these challenges, his firm and it's clients prospered. His skills and experience during this period have made him successful in helping Jobin Financial clients set strategic goals and achieve them. Now that Kyle has a family of his own, he is putting into practice the very thing he teaches.

Kyle is a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER TM CFP®, an Accredited Investment Fiduciary AIF® and a licensed Life, Health, Disability and Long-Term Care insurance agent who also holds a Series 7 and Series 63 Securities License.

 

 

 

Kristine E. Howell, CFP®, AIF®

Vice President

Kristine Howell is a third generation financial planner who began her career at just 18 years old selling life insurance. Her personal story spans decades beginning as a child watching her father manage his client's investments and meeting with them at the dining room table. His compassion and understanding of each and every client has set the tone of the Jobin Financial team. Kristine's background includes working with securities, insurance products, Long Term Health Care, and her position as a Vice President at Citibank has positioned her well over the years. Taking the reins of Marshall Financial Services in 2003, Kristine has built a successful business expanding and growing. In 2019, Kristine sold the business to Kyle Jobin to become Jobin Financial. Kristine continues to work in the firm to support her clients and to ensure a smooth transition. Much like her father's legacy, each and every client continues to remain a priority.
